Description

Yonex ™ Nanoflare 170 Light Badminton Racquet

While many players around the world prefer the touch and maneuverability of a head-light racquet, the one downside has been sacrificing the shuttle speed and power of a head-heavy racquet. Yonex Co. Ltd. has upended that contradiction with the new Nanoflare 700 (releasing March 1st), a head-light racquet built with unique technology and construction that helps players not only play nimbly but also achieve increased shuttle acceleration allowing them to hit deep into their opponent’s court.

To achieve this, designers and engineers at Yonex reimagined frame design. Firstly, the Nanoflare 700 is the first racquet to utilize the Sonic Flare System design, utilizing the latest in graphite technologies, such as TORAYCA® M40X*, to create a stable yet highly repulsive head shape. Additionally, by designing a highly aero-dimensional shape built to compress and “snap back.” they were able to realize an ultra-light racquet (5U avg. 78g) for players who demand agility, that is also able to launch the shuttle at speeds not before possible in a head-light racquet. This also results in a greater hitting feeling and less impact on the player’s arm.

Launching alongside the 700 are four other models in the new, head-light Nanoflare series. The 370 SPEED is designed for advanced players who desire improved smash speeds, while the 270 SPEED is intended for intermediate to advanced players seeking greater clears, and the 170 LIGHT is for beginning players who require the ultimate in lightness and maneuverability. Additionally, the Nanoflare Jr combines the lightweight, maneuverability with added speed, distance and comfort of the 700 in a junior racquet intended for competitive junior athletes.

Pre-strung with Yonex Demo Gut

This racquet is pre-strung with Yonex Demo Gut. This string is put into lower cost Yonex racquets to help them keep their shape and to allow the customer to have an opportunity to get a feel for the racquet before choosing the right string for their playing style. Yonex Demo Gut is a temporary string that should be upgraded shortly after purchasing the racquet.
